Collaboration at Scale: Collaborating with Thousands to Millions of Stakeholders to Prioritize City Budgets and Grow Communities
With Luke Hohmann, Founder and CEO at Conteneo Inc.


Through the last several months, the Collaboration at Scale webinar series has been exploring how you can augment core Scrum practices with frameworks that enable large, typically distributed teams to tackle a wide variety of problems. 

In this special session of the Collaboration at Scale webinar series, we explored how these frameworks — when guided by the values of both the Agile Manifesto and Scrum — gave us the ability to tackle problems at societal scale. We explored Participatory Budgeting, a process created in Latin America in which ordinary citizens directly control portions of the city budget. 

We also explored how cities such as San José, CA are adapting frameworks like Prune the Product Tree to solicit feedback from the residents on how all members and stakeholders within the community — residents, companies and others — can help their community, district and city grow. 

Gain a fresh perspective on how you can use your skills to improve your practice of Scrum and help tackle complex societal problems.
